Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Once you teleport at the start, open the bloody wooden wall to your left to find a backpack and a shotgun in an imp cage. (sector 10)
  2. At the curved hallway at the north end of the map, there are several satyr switches on the outer wall. Press on the second one from the left, then go towards the center and look south to find a megaarmor. (sector 97)
  3. Approaching the switch to raise the bridge to the red key reveals compartments with cacodemons in them. You can strafejump to the southern compartment to get a soul sphere. A better way of reaching this secret is to fall into the lava near the compartment and entering the rocks to the right, then opening the wall with slime on it and taking the steps up. (sector 198)
  4. Approaching the teleporter leading to the second part of the map lowers two columns with revenants on them. Press the satyr switch on the eastern side to find two health bonuses and an energy cell pack. This area counts as two secrets. (sector 235)
  5. See Secret #4. (sector 236)
  6. Open the slimy wall to the north of the exit switch and open the next door to find four armor bonuses and a backpack. (sector 297)
